OBJECTIVES Stroke is a major cause of long-term disability and morbidity worldwide. C-reactive protein (CRP), an inflammatory marker, has been reported to be an independent predictor of functional outcome after ischemic stroke (IS). Because several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at the CRP locus have been linked with elevated CRP levels, we hypothesized that CRP genetic variation might be associated with functional disability in patients after first-ever IS. METHODS A total of 1716… CONTINUE READING
